It is very rare to find a golf course on the Spanish Costa del Sol that was constructed 40 years ago and even rarer, that after four decades, it still provides a stern test to even the best golfers. Both are true of the Real Club de Golf Sotogrande. The first European course designed by Robert Trent Jones was described by the Master himself as a battleground which requires the golfer to execute the shots successfully to escape the many strategically placed bunkers and water hazards.
Do not let the challenge of a course that ranks in the top 10 in Continental Europe deter you, Sotogrande Golf Club rewards any golfer lucky enough to play it with a series of incredible golf holes. However, it’s good to remember that that most of the greens are elevated and that a lot of the slopes in the fairways are very subtle but not insignificant. Sotogrande was conferred the Royal Status about ten years ago and it is not difficult to see why with the class and quality that oozes everywhere from the tee boxes to the changing rooms.
